Havok Quarter Century Watch
Let's face it, there are a lot of cheap watches out there. Cheap—not inexpensive—meaning low-quality materials and production. For many of these timepieces, you get what you pay for, a watch that would inevitably be only right twice a day. But what if you could get a watch that trims the fat while still providing excellent value, and at the same time only gives you the features you need?
For their third crowdfunded watch, Havok Timepieces out of San Francisco set out to do just that. With the Quarter Century, they took the concept of an inexpensive watch, found functional alternatives to the usual materials, and focused on the features watch enthusiasts look for. We're talking Italian natural leather, Swiss Ronda movement, and a Sapphire crystal, packaged in the minimal style of a classic dress watch. By forgoing a deeper water resistance and more exotic case metals, they're able to streamline manufacturing to give you a more affordable watch. Affordable—not cheap—which is why Havok will stand by the 25-year warranty the Quarter Century is named after.
So now you have a choice to make. Buy cheap and buy twice (or thrice...), or pick up the Havok Quarter Century and own a quality timepiece for the next 25 years? Seems like an easy choice, so back one in your choice of colorway at the Kickstarter link below.
